Massey Ferguson Service Analyzer comes to LaGrange IN Tractor Show

These 33rd annual Antique Power Steam and Gas Show was held August 7-10 at the 4-H Fairgrounds in LaGrange Indiana and Ferguson equipment was the featured brand.  This year the Ferguson Enthusiasts of North America (FENA) held their National show on the grounds and the show brought around 66 Fergusons to the show with some coming from as far away as Quebec.

Along with tractors, one very cool item also made its way under the Ferguson tent, Richard Kimball’s engine analyzer. “The technician could determine what was wrong.  I found this at the Portland Indiana tractor show.  It is a good show, the biggest I have ever been to.”

Richard Kimball is from West Liberty, Ohio and has been a Ferguson enthusiast for years.  “I started collecting seriously in the early 70’s,” Richard said.  “The first tractor I bought was the Ferguson 40 on the baler I think.”

After that his collection grew as he purchased more Ferguson 20’s, 30’s and 40’s.  “I bought several in between if I could find them at a decent price,” Richard said.

“I grew up on in the late 50’s on a Ferguson 30.  My granddad had a 30 so when he quit, we bought it, then we went with the Massey Ferguson dealership until they closed up.”  Picking up implements from auctions in the 1980’s and 90’s rounded out his collection. 

“You get hooked because all these will fit onto the 3-point hitch.  I have about every implement they made,” Richard said.

When asked if he had a favorite, Richard said no, “One is as good as the other and they are all easy to work on. Now days you can’t do anything, I am a shade mechanic.”

The analyzer he had would have determined just what the problem was before the Ferguson would have been fixed and on its way!  For more information about the LaGrange show, log onto http://www.lagrangeengineclub.com/.
